Brantley is having a productive May, batting .338 (25 for 74) with one home run, one double, 10 runs and 15 RBI in 21 games (18 starts).
"Honestly, nothing was working real well for me today," he said to the New York Post. "Taking 10 days off and missing a start this late in the season and coming back as sharp as you were is tough."
Wheeler hit 100 miles per hour on the radar gun, but reportedly saw his velocity dip as the start went on. He allowed two home runs among his five hits, surrendering three runs in five innings of work.
Wheeler expects to be fine for his next turn in the rotation.
Konerko isn't having a very productive May, batting .212 (14 for 66) with one home run, two doubles, three RBI, seven runs, seven walks and 10 strikeouts.
Teahen had been playing for Arizona's Triple-A team prior to his release. Teahen hit .211 with three doubles and five RBI in 22 games for Reno.
"That’s part of the game," Scheppers said, per The Dallas Morning News. "Some guys hang over the plate, and it just happens. As a pitcher, you have to go inside. You can’t stick in one spot."
"We’ll make a decision on that as we move forward," Washington said, per The Dallas Morning News.
"At some point you will probably get to where you will try and put out the same lineup every day," Girardi said.
Girardi has a simple message for his outfielders.
"Just go out and play, that’s all you can do," Girardi said. "As we have seen there are so many things that can happen in this game that we might need to play all four of them."
"I would be shocked if he couldn’t make his next start,’’ Girardi said, per the New York Post.
Kuroda also seems confident he will be back on the hill Tuesday.
"It will depend on how it feels [Thursday], but for me I will make the next start,’’ Kuroda said.
Hamilton will tell you, however, nothing in his approach has changed.
"The ball is finding holes," Hamilton said, per the Los Angeles Times. "It's irritating for me to try to explain. Before … the results weren't there. So when the results finally get there, it's like something different happened. But it really hasn't. That's irritating."
